Mother’s Day only comes around once a year, so you better do right by your mom. A gift can’t possibly measure up to the love and support moms give, but it’s a start.

Austin is a unique town, and in much the same way each mom has her own one-of-a-kind combination of personality traits, quirks and interests. What better to celebrate your mom’s individuality than by giving her something reflective of the most iconoclastic city in Texas?

Here are 10 Austin-themed gifts for mom.

The Austin Steam Train Association runs several trips a week through the Hill Country. Most round trips start and end in Cedar Park with a stop in Bertram. Some routes go all the way as south as downtown Austin.

Soak in the scenery with Mom on their special Mother’s Day trip (if tickets are still available). The 15-minute stop in Bertram is enough time to walk around the depot and take a few pictures before making the return leg of the journey. Seats are filling up, so get them soon!
